Singer-songwriter Rebecca Lappa got the chance to bring home another prestigious award.
 
The local artist was invited to the Ottawa Bluesfest, to compete in the She's the One competition.
 
Featuring the nation's top emerging female voices, the Canadian War Museum Theatre hosted performers aged 13-21 for the live signing competition.
 
"We got to perform two songs and then the judges made their decision," said Lappa.
 
Although Lappa didn't come in first, it was still a great experience for her.
 
"It was really cool, we got to stick around and watch [Bluesfest] and we got two-day passes to the festival so before we competed we went and got to meet all of the contestants,"
 
Up next for the local star is a couple of performances at the 124 Street Grand Market (July 20) and the Edmonton Vibe Series at the Art Gallery of Alberta (July 21).
